Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Pasta Shells

This is such a yummy pasta dish. My family
loves it. Thanks Wendy for the recipe!

1 box of jumbo shells cooked until slightly al dente
(you still want it to be firm so you can stuff them
they will cook in the oven)
12-16 oz. of Italian sausage cooked and drained
15 oz. of ricotta cheese
12-16 oz. of frozen spinach
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
3 Tbs. lemon juice
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1 tsp. of oregano
2 eggs -beaten
salt and pepper to taste
spaghetti sauce

Cook Italian sausage. Once cooked you can put in a food
processor and grind up so it is fine and not so chunky.
Add the rest of ingredients except spaghetti sauce.
Heat over over medium heat until everything is mixed together.
Then stuff the shells. Cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan with a
thin layer of spaghetti sauce and place the stuffed shells in the pan.
Once you have filled all of the shells cover them with spaghetti sauce.
Cover with tin foil and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for
20 minutes. Remove foil and cover with 1 cup of mozzarella
cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
